RIBase
I had a Fuego, and a Nissan Sylvia turbo in the early 90s. Troublesome bloody things.


What I really fancied was the rear-engined Renault 5 rally car that was for sale a few years ago at Lockinge garage in Weston.Same as this, but red.

Love it - used to see a green one parked near the catherdral when I was a kid going to school in portsmouth .

But having driven a sporty H plate renault for a few year I'd be amazed if the electrics still work after half an hour.

I'd pay maybe 8k absolute maximum - 20k is just daft - never sell for that much. I'd rather by Lancia Delta Integrale.

Like it ! But I heard they were liable to kill you in very short order unless you were really really really carefull , or a really really really good driver ( aren't we all ? )
